    Northern Red will be coming to Douglas Ridge Rifle Club Sept 12th and 13th (Sat-Sun) for a two day pistol/carbine Gunfighter course.

    I've witnessed JD's instruction first hand, and he's a top notch instructor. They recommend 400 rds of pistol and 400 rds of carbine ammo for this class.

    Price is $600 total for the weekend.

    Hope to see some of you out there.

    I understand not everyone can afford a class such as this one. I would have given the same response a few years back. For those who can afford to attend though, I can assure you the level of training and experience you'll receive are well worth it!

    $600 for 2 days is expensive for tuition when compared to other schools. But if your a local then this is still a good deal because you dont have to buy plane tickets, fly with weapons, ship ammo, pay for rental car, pay for motel, and take time off work for travel. These types of big name classes are rare to be offered in our area.

    Why are they requiring prerequisites when the course outline says they are only covering beginner material? Is the course outline correct? Are they covering anything else not mentioned in the outline?

    I believe Redback One is $550 for a 2 day class, so it's not too far off. But yes, it's local and a weekend, so that can often be a benefit for some.

    I think they are saying you need to have SOME experience with the platform. A complete newbie would probably be out of place in this level of class, but as long as you can manipulate both your pistol and carbine somewhat efficiently, you should be good to go.

    I watched the class Northern Red taught at DRRC a few years ago. My wife and two friends attended. JD gave a beginners pistol (2 day) class and on day two he had them doing EXTREMELY advanced weapons manipulation. They definitely got their money's worth.

    For Redback One you can sign up for either one or both

    Aug 17-18 CQCS pistol $525 (pistol rounds 1000)
    Aug 19-20 CQCS carbine $525 (carbine rounds 1000, pistol rounds 400)

    They are level 2 classes with prerequisites.

    I stand corrected. I believe it was $550 for each two day class last year.

    I could hook you up. Additionally, the Redback One classes have been unfortunately cancelled due to a lack of enrollment. So far the Northern Red class is still a go.

    I've seen JD teach in person. It was a "beginner" pistol class (2 days).

    By the 2nd day, they were doing extrely advanced training. The kind of things I've done in an advanced pistol class.
